Our affiliate, the Northeastern Ontario Rail Network (NEORN) has issued a release about funding for the “Northlander”. It demonstrates that there MUST be approval and funding of the Ontario Northland/Metrolinx business plan in the upcoming March 2021 Ontario Budget, in order to implement the plan an reinstate the train service prior to the next election.
We’ve launched a joint letter writing campaign to remind the provincial government of the importance of keeping this promise.
The NEORN release can be viewed here.
Funding for the Northlander was also highlighted in our 2021 pre-budget submission.
